Albert Cuyp Street Market

In our view a true traveling experience to a destination must include a visit to a street market and places locals go to.  Even though you will see a few tourists around the Albert Cuyp area, you will soon realize this open-air market caters mostly to locals looking to buy food, books, clothes or to eat and drink a beer in one of its 300 stalls. We recommend you try some Dutch Gouda cheese, local beers and delicacies like poffertjes (very small pancakes) and stroopwafels (waffle-like cookies): deliciously satisfying snacks! It is open Tuesday to Sunday from 8am to 6pm, but do check their website before heading to the market. By the way, the surrounding streets are full of restaurants and bars and get quite lively with a local crowd, especially in nice weather days.
